lyrics

Ride The Waves (Pamela Polland)

Hereʻs a song thatʻs meant to be
for the boys who ride the waves.
Iʻm not a surfer, but I can see, this is no passing phase.
For when she holds you, like Iʻve seen the ocean do
Itʻs the greatest embrace, itʻs a water chase,
being shot like a bullet from the deepest blue –
ride the waves, ride the waves

From Secret Spot to Hanalei, Malibu to Waimea Bay
I salute the boys who ride the waves, ride the waves

If you donʻt treat the ocean waters
with the full respect you should
She can break you, sons and daughters,
and wipe you out for good.
But when she holds you, itʻs like a motherʻs womb
But at any hour the oceanʻs power can also be your doom: Ride the waves, ride the waves
From Secret Spot to Hanalei, Malibu to Waimea Bay
I salute the boys who ride the waves, ride the waves

Garth Webber Solo

For when she holds you, like Iʻve seen the ocean do
Itʻs the greatest embrace, itʻs a water chase,
being shot like a bullet from the deepest blue –
ride the waves, ride the waves
From Mavericks to Jeffreyʻs Bay,
Pe‘ahi Jaws on a Winterʻs day
I salute the boys who ride the waves, ride the waves

Bellʻs Beach! Banzai Pipeline! Cortez Bank! The Wedge! Playa Del Negra! Mentawais, Ride the waves!
